My iPad frequently changes to the neighbors unsecured WiFi. I have added my own WiFi extender to increase my WiFi signal strength in the room where I work but frequently find my iPad switching to the neighbor's WiFi. I have connected to the neighbor's WiFi then "Forgotten" that network; however it frequently pops back on and replaces my own secured network connection. Apple has been unable to provide a satisfactory solution.

  • Do you use a Mac which is logged into the same iCloud account as your iPad? – Timothy Mueller-Harder Dec 29 '16 at 4:39
  • Thanks for your comment/question but there is no Mac in the house or on the network. I have spoken with Apples reps and there seems to be no way to restrict the iPad to a preferred network. Even when turning off the option to "ask to join a network". Seems strange you cannot control/restrict the iPad to a specific network/WiFi connection. – IOS48 Dec 29 '16 at 14:52
  • Have you tried going to Settings > General > Reset and selecting Reset Network Settings? – Timothy Mueller-Harder Dec 29 '16 at 14:55
